Where to donate?


When we decide to start crafting for charity, it can be a challenge to find one that fits your needs. So here is a list of some great charities that accept handmade donations. Most are preemie/angel related but there are a few others also. This list updates when new places request an add so check back regularly.

Do you run a charity that accepts handmade items? Email me at myshellecole@gmail.com and let me know your link, location and basic details and I'll add you here.

  1. Because of an angel granddaughter, my daughter, my 92 year old mother, and I have become quite involved in "angel baby packets", working through some local groups, Tiny Tears, and Small Town Angel Baby Support. We live in a rural area, so my daughter has been trying to make sure every small hospital has something. Your patterns are wonderful. Also our local community is sponsoring a service day, highlighting items for the local hospitals, through the SHARE program. Could we use some of your patterns for this event?

    1. I have no problem with you printing them out and passing them around for your day, that is fine. Please just pop the web address back to the blog on the printout so people can find the page again should they need to.
      I wish you all the luck for a successful event :)

  3. Hello :) thank you for adding us here at Tiny Treasures to your list above. For some reason the link here to our site is not working. I think this is because when this was added we were having problems with our domain name. These problems are now sorted so I wondered if when you get a chance if you could re add our link above to www.tinyt.co.uk and hopefully it should work this time. Once again thank you :)
